Yahoo Chief Executive Marissa Mayer unveiled the
news at an employee meeting on Friday, the newspaper said,
citing a person present at the meeting.
Yahoo's search engine will incorporate Yelp's listings and
reviews and the feature will be launched in the coming weeks,
the newspaper said.
The terms of the deal, which could help Yahoo compete with
market leader Google, were not revealed.
Yahoo and Yelp could not be immediately reached for comment.
